Future 6 core Intel Processors

Right now I have a Core 2 Duo E6600 and want to upgrade to a i7 930 when it comes out around March. Before I do this, will there be in the near future a 6 core processor that is cheaper than the Core i7-980 XE? If so, will it be on the same socket so I would be able to upgrade if I get the 930.

  1. Yes and no. Phenom IIx6 is due out around the same time. Socket AM3. Can't possibly be more than $300. But there will be nothing for socket 775 nor will there be a cheaper 6-core for a while for 1366.
